Cristeta, White House Executive Chef!

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, January 29, 2009
Today Michelle Obama announced that Cristeta Comerford will stay on as White House executive chef, putting to rest all the speculation surrounding the decision.

Cristeta Comerford took the job in 2005 and is the first woman and first minority to serve as executive chef.

"Cristeta Comerford brings such incredible talent to the White House operation and came very highly regarded from the Bush family," Michelle Obama said in a statement released by the transition team. "Also the mom of a young daughter, I appreciate our shared perspective on the importance of healthy eating and healthy families."

Comerford is a naturalized U.S. citizen from the Philippines who studied French cooking in Vienna, Austria, and specializes in ethnic and American cuisine.

At first I thought they will replace her with their family chef, but I was wrong. I felt good again when I read on the news that they just want to keep their family chef. Thanks, First Lady, Michelle:-)! She's one of our own, she's doing very well, and we share in the pride. I am proud of you, Cristeta!

Correct! proud pinoy tayo talaga. Even Charice (pinay singer na alaga ni Oprah) sung for the Obama Family. Napaiyak daw yung kapatid ni Obama nung kinanta ang "God BLess America" at binuhat daw nya si Charice
